Help!!! Freaking out a bit EDIT UPDATE IN RED

Has anyone ever had an ectopic pregnancy? What were your symptoms? Especially if it happened with an IUD like the Mirena.

I have the Mirena and have been having a ton of pain in my lower abdomen and pelvic area and low back pain, all mostly on the right side as well as some spotting and dizziness. I don't know what is going on but I was reading stuff about Mirena and it had mentioned an ectopic pregnancy. Well, I don't know much about them.

Any help is appreciated! DH is on the way to the store to get pee tests. Do they show up on regular test????


Pregnancy test said negative. So it's probably not that. Now I don't know what it is. I think I should wait until the morning and then call my OB if I'm still hurting or if it gets worse go to the ER. TY ladies for all the advice though and I hope nothing turns out to be wrong.

I would skip the pee sticks and call your DR, go to the ER or a urgent care place. If it IS a eptopic pregnancy, you dont want to sit around with it. It can do a lot of damage. GL hun i would go see a DR ASAP !!

If it isn't a baby, then you aren't pregnant, so what are you aborting? ~Author Unknown

If u have an eptopic pregnancy it does show on tests but I don't know if the pharmacy one or the blood and if so it's not a viable pregnancy at all.  Good Luck and check w/ your doctor.

I agree.... one of my friends had this (not sure if she had any IUD or not) but she was having extreme/intense pain and went to have it checked out.  She didn't know she had an ectopic pregnancy until then, and it had causeda lot of complications (she had a lot of blood loss too, not just some spotting, but like heavy period which is why she was going in to ER), and because of the complications if she had waited, she could have lost her life.  I wish I remembered all the details to it, but I don't. 

If you're in any doubt over this, I'd still go in to have it checked out for sure!  Better safe than sorry!
